Terracotta is a type of ceramic made from special red and brown clays. This material is shaped into the desired tile design and then is allowed to dry. After that, it is fired, either in a kiln or in a combustible pit. Firing the clay makes it hard, and durable, allowing it to serve as flooring. It can then be glazed to make it impervious to stains, sealed to protect it from damage, or left untreated in its natural state. The reason that most people purchase terracotta flooring is for the beauty and colors of the red and earthen hues.

Terracotta tends to have an old world charm that can encompass an entire room when used as flooring. The material has a rough, rustic feel to it, which is both rugged and subdued all at once. This can be minimized, or emphasized, by purchasing handmade or machine cut pieces. This material is a great choice for rustic or natural settings, as well as log cabin style decors. It is popular in living rooms, kitchen backsplash, and as flooring for enclosed porches. Warmer than stone or glazed ceramic, it is also perfect for a hearth and home earth tone decor.?
